Specialized Allez Elite 52cm 2011 Stolen 25/10 - Romsey

Postby KatyR » 28 Oct 2014, 12:54pm

We had 5 bikes stolen from our garage in Romsey, Hampshire on 25th October 2014. Details of my Allez are as follows:

Specialized Allez Elite 52cm 2011, red with silver Planet X seatpost. Customised with Shimano 105 crankset, black bar tape (with purple insulation tape) and black Specialized riva saddle.
2 x carbon Planet X bottlecages. Also had a cateye cycle computer, but I imagine those would be removed.
A purple headset spacer amoungst white spacers also makes it more distinctive.
It has a Shimano R550 wheelset, which has aero spokes and red nipples.
It had Specialized Roubaix tyres on at the time and Shimano R550 SPD-SL road pedals.
It also had a shorter than standard white Specialized stem. I can't remember the exact length, but it looks short for the frame size.

Crime reference number 44140386468.

This was a highly calculated burglary in broad daylight, which one of our neighbours witnessed. The man who stole the bikes knew my partner's name and must have known that we had gone away for the weekend, so I imagine that this was someone local, but realistically, the bikes could end up anywhere. The man used a dark transit van and had brought an approximately 10 year old boy with him. The police have a good desription, but we just want to ensure that our bikes are returned to us safely.

3 of the bikes are completely custom builds, one of which is a prototype race BMX, so these are irreplaceable. Please see my other posts and if you see anything similar, don't hesitate to contact me (07515411167) or the police, using the crime reference number above.

Many thanks,
